Kickstart LouBrew at BoomBozz.

Jeremy Rathfon wants to be a nanobrewer. In his own words (copied from Kickstart), here's the plan:

LouBrew will be a local “nanobrewery”, brewing up concoctions on a single barrel system (that’s 31 gallons or two kegs! truly nano!), where we will maintain ideals of superior hand-crafted ales and lagers. Our mission is to provide a complete rotating variety of specialty and seasonal beers with a local flavor to the Louisville area. Ideally we will be located in the Germantown area of Louisville in the heart of an ever expanding neighborhood that prides great beer and good eats.

LouBrew will be the smallest brewery in Louisville upon startup allowing us the freedom to explore many interesting and unique styles of brew.

LouBrew will create a taproom onsite at our brewery, where beer lovers will be able to come in, taste our great beer, and take a gander at where and how we create our delicious brews. If our space allows we will love to have an outdoor patio for outdoor seating, an occasional grill-out, and a fire pit to warm-up by. We will be holding regular polls and surveys where our beer fans can vote on what brews we’ll cook up next. We also plan to attend all of the great beer festivals around town, including Brew at the Zoo, Louisville Craft Beer Week, and Oktoberfest. You can always expect from us twists on classic styles, extreme flavors, seasonal favorites, and innovative recipes brewed with a hand-crafted single barrel spirit.

An important element of all our beers will be the use of the highest quality ingredients sourced as much as possible from surrounding regional growers and suppliers. Examples of locally sourced ingredients include KY Hosey’s Honey, KY winery pinot noir barrels, KY bourbon oak barrels, and KY grown organic hops.

Also in Jeremy's own words, here's what BoomBozz is doing to help:

Boombozz Highlands Taphouse will be hosting a benefit for LouBrew next Thursday, July 21st, 5:00 p.m. to close. $1 of every local pour goes to LouBrew's Kickstarter! Help Kickstart a new Louisville brewery! If you can't make it, would like more info, or would like to pledge before the event, check out our Kickstarter, every $1 helps!
